  Good day everyone. glad you liked the ONR shot CM3. it's al ittle known railway for the most part outside of Ontario itself , but it has it's own charm and some interesting operations and a neat mix of equipment. where else can you see SD70's and GP7's and 9's in regular every day service.Today's shots.

Ahoy Cap'n Tom!

Sad day for me - but it must be done . . . Last visit ovAH here for the foreseeable futAH . . .

Only regret is that we didn't attract very many guys who have been willing to ENGAGE - lots 'n lots of browsers, but I guess that's the nature of things here in cyber space where it's so easy to TAKE, but so much harder to GIVE. Thumbs Down [tdn]

Anyway - good luck to all the guyz ovAH at my favorite watering hole "Our" Place! Thumbs Up [tup] Thumbs Up [tup] Thumbs Up [tup]

 

 

Until the next time! Thumbs Up [tup]

F-units and drumheads good group for the day donchathink. to bad CN did away with those F's once they assumed control of the ACR from the WC. Intresting note that the Algoma never purchased F units those were brought in by the WC when they assumed control in the 90's and specifically put them and the domes on the Agawa Canyon train . At least CN has left the domes on the train.

The only thing that would have been better is a B unit in between Thumbs Up [tup] I suppose with all the sound equiped E's and F's out there now we can almost re-create those sounds and feelings.

Good Morning

Hane enjoyed all of the Canadian material lately.  Commented on Lars's WP book at the bar.  At least they ran the Fs in the correct way.  Always had a problem with elephant style.  Southern Crescent often had 4 Es for power; two pair back to back - that was O.K.  Would like to go back in the time machine and hear them load up leaving town once more.

work safe

Ah another Greg McDonnell fan, great book too, love his appreciation of the 40' boxcars, another good one is Passing Trains, the Ten-Hundred Territory being my fav, as a GMD-1 fan, Signatures In Steel is the first one i read from Transcona Libby, and it is a superb book, and check out my GMD-1 1600 A1A trucked diesel tattoo, my tribute to the good Canadian National before Hunter Harrison came along
